NFL odds and spread: Detroit vs. Washington, Atlanta vs. Tennessee

Our NFL Week 5 betting preview continues with the odds and point spread on the football games between the Detroit Lions vs. the Washington Redskins and the Atlanta Falcons vs. the Tennessee Titans.

 We continue the betting previews of the NFL Week 5 games, now we will take a look at the point spread and betting odds on the following games: Detroit Lions (3-1) vs. Washington Redskins (2-1) and Atlanta Falcons (1-3) vs. Tennessee Titans (2-1).

 After a great start of the 2007 football season, the Detroit Lions will visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday for an NFC battle, which favors the Redskins, according to the online sports betting site Bookmaker. The bookie has the Washington Redskins listed with betting odds to win at -200, compared to the Detroit Lions with a money line of +170. The point spread on the Detroit Lions vs. the Washington Redskins game shows that the early bettors also favor the Redskins against the spread, but by only -3.5 points with a total sitting at 46.5 points. This could be justified by the betting trends, which show that Detroit is 4-1-1 against the spread in its last 6 games, but 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing on the road against the Washington Redskins. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Washington's last 9 games when playing at home against the Detroit Lions.

 And the other football game in Week 5 is between the Atlanta Falcons and the Tennessee Titans, and the bettors and bookmakers alike believe that it is shaping to be quite a slaughter for the struggling ATL team. The hosting Tennessee Titians are the unquestionable favorite to win this game with betting odds -375 (you'd need to bet 375 to win 100) and the Falcons are the ultimate underdog with odds +315. The point spread for the Atlanta Falcons vs. Tennessee Titans game is a healthy -8 points chalk for the Titans and the total is listed at 40.5 points at Bookmaker. Tennessee is 6-1 against the spread in its last 7 games at home and the total has gone OVER in 10 of Tennessee's last 15 games at home.
